E-Safety

Internet safety is a vital part of our school curriculum.  We promote internet safety in assemblies and events like the UK Safer Internet Day, class discussions eg based on current affairs, in our PSHE curriculum and via our Computing curriculum, which is based on the Purple Mash and the governments Education for a Connected World.  

We are always careful to promote the benefits of the modern digital world at the same time as promoting safety advice to the children.  We focus on helping them acquiring and developing the skills and knowledge that they need to help keep themselves safe, in the digital world in the same way as the physical world.

Key Organisations

There is a lot of information about online safety/E-Safety.  We have included some information below to try to help you sift through it.  They key is to look for organisations offering quality advice.  The NSPCC is particularly good at offering advice about how to start discussions with children about internet safety.  Some of the best are:

CEOP

Parent Info - from Parent Zone and CEOP
